CNN Expert demos Full Semi Auto AR15 mode - The stupid burns

I am just shaking my head. I dont know where else to go with this. CNN analyst shoots AR15 while holding it out in front of him. It is almost like he is trying to make it look hard to handle. Then the retired General is up and he shoots a couple of rounds. Then he takes it into Fully Semiautomatic Mode - Whatever that is...


CNN's Gary Tuchman goes to a shooting range to take an up-close look at an AR-15-style rifle with retired Lieutenant General Mark Hertling.

Fully semiautomatic (F). Because once you flip the switch to sometimes semiautomatic (S), it may not shoot when you pull on the trigger. :confused5

I thought the M4 had three round burst mode—don’t see that on my AR15...

Do they just pay these people so much money they lie or are they all mentally challenged?

The Army should take away his little general soldier card after that.

So he fires "single shots", and then goes to "full semi-automatic"...does that make the single shots "semi semi-automatic"?
Deplorable lunatic since 2016

It's for when you need semi-suppressing fire. Duh.

I feel like I lost IQ points listening to and watching that video.

Hmmm... That was on a 25 yard range, right?

If I shot that wide a pattern with my pistol, I’d hang my head in shame. Poor guy, can’t shoot and his friends at CNN expect him to have a valid opinion.

The .223 doesn’t exactly have a big kid recoil, does it?

Well you hold the rifle away from your shoulder and let it bounce all over the place in order to prove how powerful they want us to think it is... I would expect nothing less.

The general's form in shooting the AR is great too. Chicken wing all the way...
